This is the first painting in a series of work on ST THOMAS, VIRGIN ISLANDS. i spent some time there last spring... teaching watercolor. i didn't get as much imagery to work from as i normally do .. but has caught my eye.

This acrylic is 16 x 20.. and is mid-state. i need to develop more richly the pattern in the leaves. there's a dizzy perspective that i like ... looking up at he the foliage beyond the gate. St Thomas is rich in all of it's winding streets and crannies.... this hidden treasure of the artist's house was particularly intriguing.

i plan to do 6 painting in this series.
